A film in which a yellow mini has a cameo role? No, it’s not an update of Goodbye Pork Pie, but Second Hand Wedding is directed by Paul Murphy, whose father Geoff directed Pork Pie and I’d give it four stars.
It’s a gentle story about life, love, family and a mother with a penchant for garage sales. It may not make anyone think but it made me laugh and there were also moments when my eyes got moist – the reason for the latter escaped my farmer who was watching it with me, but he said he enjoyed it too.
Don’t rush away as soon as the credits roll, there’s a vignette among them to ensure you walk out of the theatre with a grin.
[Update: Poneke gives a fuller and more fulsome review.
